UNDP positioned itself early to support the Government to effectively manage the crisis and lay the foundations for an effective recovery. Our investment focused on: strengthening the capture and analysis of key data to inform the health response and better understand the multi-dimensional impact of the crisis; rapidly demonstrating the viability of digital platforms like mobile wallets to expedite payments to the poorest of the poor; and establishing crisis coordination and management structures in BARMM.
UNDP’s COVID 2.0 offer – Moving Beyond Recovery and Towards 2030 - now enables us to further build on these core investments as well as support the Philippines’ capacity for anticipatory governance to enable it to shape a resilient future in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world and regain its momentum towards the attainment of the SDGs.
UNDP has been working in the Philippines for over 40 years. Today, it continues to strengthen the country’s capacities at the national and local levels to promote democratic governance, sustainable management of natural resources, climate change adaptation and disaster risk management, and resilience and peacebuilding. In all its programmes, UNDP integrates human rights and gender equality, believing that everyone should have equal access to the benefits of development.
